Excellent - thank you for sharing!
Especially love Gwendoline Christie as Brienne. She looks fabulous. I'll admit I did not picture Davos that way at all (more Inigo Montoya from the Princess Bride) but I can go with it. Looking forward to season 2 with great excitement!

Same thing here. Not that I don't like Davos' TV version, mind you, but so far he is one of the most different characters from what I pictured from the books.

I really like Brienne, I just hope she's tall.

Gwendoline Christie (the actress) is 6'3". No worries there.

Heh. I know that after the announcement, people were worried that Gwendoline Christie was "too pretty" to play Brienne.

I think it's safe to say that the makeup folks are due for another Emmy nomination here.

Am I the only one who doesn't think Brienne looks that ugly here?

Brienne, WOW
I was skeptical about the Brienne casting, since I thought the actress was way too pretty. I was hoping for a Charlize Theron/Monster treatment, but I wasn't sure it was gonna happen.

Glad to see I was wrong. Brienne looks perfect! (Well, she doesn't have the large blue eyes, but only a supreme nerd would rage at that. ;)

Those are great pics posted so far. I hope we'll see Jaqen soon!

I must say you have chosen Brienne very very well! She is just like I imagined her, perfect! And Davos Seaworth (by the way, I love his name) is also as I imagined him (except that the fingers missing are in the wrong hand :P)
The only actor that is not as I imagined him is Patrick Malahide, as Balon Greyjoy. I pictured Balon in a completely different way. Yet, if Patrick plays his part well, I will be happy! :)

When I saw that pic of Gwendoline Christie as Brienne I actually said "holy fuck" out loud.

I CANNOT BELIEVE how accurate the casting is! BRAVO!

Am I the only one who doesn't believe that Brienne (the character, not Gwendoline Christie) isn't actually ugly? I imagine she is a handsome butch girl...but so far out of the beauty standards that no one can see her beauty...also because of that she is awkward and without a lot self-confidence...which doesn't help.
